Veteran actress Neena Gupta’s designer daughter Masaba has been hearing words like ”Bas****” and “illegitimate child” since childhood days. The designer, who recently retweeted in support of firecracker ban by the Supreme Court was trolled by people. They called her names that are not suitable to be posted on social networking platforms.
After taking it for long, Masaba broke her silence and gave it back to the haters by telling them that she has been immune to these words. She wrote that she is the daughter of two of the most legitimate personalities and would not shrink and crumble in shame of something that the society is unable to handle.
Masaba took to Twitter to share a long post on the same on Thursday (October 12). She had written “Recently I had retweeted in support of the firecracker ban by the Supreme Court and like every other issue in this country; big or small…The trolling and bashing began.
By calling me names like ‘bast*** child’ or ‘illegitimate West Indian’, it only makes my chest swell in pride. I’m the illegitimate product of two of the MOST legitimate personalities you’ll find and I’ve made the best life, both personally and professionally…out of which I am proud of.
I’ve been called these names since I was 10 years old and ever since I could read the newspapers these are two words I am immune to.
My legitimacy comes from the work I do, and what my contribution to the society has been. And you can try but you will not be able to raise a single finger on either of the two.
So, please. If you must…go ahead and continue calling me these names if it makes you feel glorious. But know this…I am a proud Indo-Caribbean girl who doesn’t know how to shrink and crumble in shame of something you or your society cannot handle. It’s just my ‘illegitimate’ genes.”
Well, here is pat on the back of such a strong headed woman who did not fall a prey to such trolls, but fought her way out so valiantly.
